(The Gear Loop) - Shokz, formerly known as AfterShokz, has revealed a smaller, more compact version of its range-topping OpenRun Pro that has been specially designed to fit smaller heads.

The band in the Mini version has been reduced by 0.83-inches (or around 2cm), which creates a more snug fit for those who previously thought the band on the original let them down, bouncing around when exercising.


The shrinking only applies to the band, as the same technology still applies here, including the ninth generation of the brand’s bone conduction technology, a ten hour battery life, rapid one hour charge time and IP55 rated sweat and water-resistance.

The slightly cheaper OpenRun model, which has a slightly reduced battery life and the previous generation bone conduction technology comes with IP67 waterproof rating, which makes it good for most activities bar submersion in a pool when swimming.

Priced at £159.95, the Mini version doesn’t command a price premium but colours are limited to black or beige, as opposed to blue and pink options also available in the standard size model.
